    Hi Harry, that's very nice thanks for showing it. It would go so well in my collection! I'd been wondering what the rounds looked like.
    I can't see a driving band on the projectile - hows that work - or am I missing something really obvious?

    Can't help but notice the similarity between this and the long 30mm nutcracker round from the 1950's. See the orange/red coloured round on the link below.

    Mauser developed two different 30mm and two 35mm RMK rounds, measuring 30x230, 30x280, 35x300 and 35x350. There was originally also a 30x140, but this was not developed.

    A number of shooting guns were made and tested, the emphasis being on 30mm. At one point the German version of the Eurocopter Tiger was a prime candidate for installation.

    The whole project was cancelled a couple of years ago because of lack of orders. I understand that it proved impossible to mass-produce the ammunition at a sensible price.
